L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara: It Really Works!

You’re probably wondering why I’m posting again in the beauty section since we we just had a beauty review two days ago. Yes, I am braking the rule–because you’ve got to try L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara.

To be honest, I really don’t pay that much attention to mascara. My lashes are pretty short and I really have to spend a lot of time on them if I want significant length and volume. While most of my friends insist that mascara is the one beauty product they cannot live without, for me it has never been that important. I can’t ever get the results I want–even if I use lash primer, which rarely happens because I’m too impatient.

Well, looks like I won’t have to dread the lashes part of my makeup routine anymore. The applicator brush of the Extra Volume Collagen Mascara is really thick, allowing me to grab a whole bunch of lashes at once. With just a couple of coats, I was able to get the same results that I  would after using both primer and mascara. It’s so effective that I even did my bottom lashes, which I haven’t done at all in the last three years. I can’t believe that I actually woke up today looking forward to putting mascara on.

One of the things that always scares me about a new mascara is washing it off at the end of the day. A lot of budget mascaras I’ve tried take forever to remove and even after I think I’ve gotten it all off, more clumps appear after I blink. But not this time. I used my usual makeup remover and the mascara came off effortlessly. I’m sold!

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Liplift

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Liplift, $30

I have always used eyeshadow primer but had no idea that a base for lip gloss and lipstick existed as well–until I tried the fabulous Kiss Kiss Liplift from Guerlain.

Liplift evens out the grooves on the surface of your lips, allowing you to achieve a very smooth application of color afterward. For this exact reason, I always used to prep my lips with balm before putting on lip gloss. But now that I’ve tried Liplift, I think I’ll take five from my chapstick.

Two more noteworthy benefits of this product. First, it does not dry out your lips. Second, it helps your color last longer, which is a sign of a good priming product.

The “lift” part of the product’s name suggests that it also plumps your pucker. I can’t say that it dramatically plumped my lips, but I did notice a small difference. What sold me on Liplift is how much it improves the appearance of your gloss or lip stick. For that reason alone, I say this Guerlain goodie is a must-have.

Let me know if you have any other tips for making your lip gloss or lipstick stay on longer!
